Leaking after getting an IUD

Hi,
I have used a DivaCup (size 1) for 3 years without any issues until this past October. In October, I had a copper IUD inserted. Every period since (I believe I am on my sixth cycle now), I have had issues with leakage. And this is not just on heavy days. This happens before the cup is full. Any ideas on how to remedy? I bought a new DivaCup in hopes that it is just the fact that my old DivaCup was old and losing its firmness, but the issue has persisted.
When I insert it, I run my finger around the rim to ensure it is completely opened up. I really do not want to go back to tampons, but constantly worrying that I am leaking isn’t really working either.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
Thanks!
